Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Curator Isabelle Cornaro has brought shows to the Musée d’Art Moderne de la ville de Paris (MAM), the Palais de Tokyo, New York’s SculptureCenter, and the Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard where she is currently presenting the group show “Paris”, the 18th Prize Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard, featuring works by Anne Imhof, Will Benedict and Clarisse Hahn among others. Here are the Parisian address suggestions of an expert.
WHERE TO EAT
The restaurant Tan Dinh, an excellent Vietnamese restaurant with an extraordinary wine menu. Chez Georgette, a small restaurant in the 9th arrondissement that serves family-style cuisine that is simple and delicious. My favorite dish in Paris is at the excellent Japanese restaurant Yen in Saint-Germain-des-Prés—the black cod marinated in miso and soy and then grilled.
WHERE TO SIP
Le Condé in the 6th arrondissement. Candelaria in Le Marais, with its slight Californian look and surprising cocktails. The whisky sour and negroni stay my favorite cocktails.
WHERE TO NETWORK
Café Beaubourg, in front of the Centre Pompidou, because it’s enjoyable and very central.
WHERE TO SEE ART
Édouard Montassut and Section 7 Books in the Passage du Ponceau in the 2nd arrondissement. Also, the Galerie Balice Hertling in Belleville and the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN
The old cabaret Chez Moune.
WHERE TO RELAX
The Piscine Pontoise—a swimming pool from the 1930s near Maison de la Mutualité.
